If you're not busy playing this Super Smash Brothers mod on your graphics calculator, prepare yourself for the 2015 year of schooling by modding your ever useful device into a selfie-capturing camera.




Thanks to Christoper Mitchell, high school girls can take more selfies than ever before due to his latest project named ArTICam. Through the utilization of a Game Boy Camera and a programmable Arduino board, Mitchell has released plans to enable you to take a 128 x 123 pixel selfie grayscale image.


According to Mitchell, this project isn't designed as a spectacular new imaging product, but more-so as a fun gadget project that all can test out for themselves.


If you want to make one of these for yourself, take a look at his official project website. However beware - Game Boy Camera's aren't exactly in abundance. You might find yourself being followed home by old-school Nintendo fans if you start cannibalizing one of their most collected products.
